    Outlook / index wih lookout / Offline Public Folder Support

    Hello,

    right now I am testing Outlook/Zarafa functions in order to migrate as soon as possible

    There are two big problems I have right now and I am searching for a solution for two weeks.

    Hope anyone here perhaps has a solution:

    1. I don't like the Outlook-search. So I decided to use Lookout. But when I try to create the first index, Outlook always crashes with
    log like this:

    It was tried in protected memory to write or read. This is often an indication that other memory is damaged.
    [color=#FF0000]
    ####EDIT#####

    Lookout seems to run if you turn the indexer aggressiness to "least aggressive" ! So I hope this problem is solved.

    ####EDIT#####[/color]


    2. We need this public folder offline sync stuff. I was searching for a small (open source) tool to sync contacts from public to private folders when I start / Stop Outlook, but I haven't find anything good.

    Do you know any good tool to make the public folder accessible offline? Or to the Zarafa Crew: Can you tell me when this feature will be implemented?
    I have read some topics here where this feature is also announced in future version's, but nothing where an Version is advised. (or will it be 6.2 / and when will it appear approximately? )

    Greetings

    mw

    Hi Mw,

    We have already been busy with implementing the Favorite folders for the Public, so you can select folders for offline usage.
    The is still quite some work todo, so I don't know when the rest of the project will be available.

    I will keep you informed.

    Regards,

    Milo

    thanks in advance

    Hi mw,

    Favourites in public folders are quite simple:
    Just select a folder in the public folder, right mouse context menu, select 'Add to favourites'.

    Note: there are still some small issues, though don't be afraid to mention issues on the forum, we might have missed one. In a beta version it's easier to fix than a final version, of course..

    Hi Imar,

    thanks for this fast reply.

    ok i can put public folders to favorites.

    I haven't used Outlook at all until now.

    I can't use my favorites offline. So is the sense of favorite just to find my favorite folders faster in a bunch of public folders?

    Greetings

    Hi MW,

    Yes, at the moment it's 'just a shortcut for a public folder'.
    But... it's a major first step to have public folders available in offline modi.
    That is the next phase which we will implement. Offline public folders in one big merge wasn't possible unfortunately.

    Additionaly, you wouldn't want to have the complete public folder available offline as you can imagine concerning size or amount of items to sync.

    Hi Imar,

    thats true. I don't want to carry as much as needed on tour....

    There has to be a feature to select which folders has to be synced and which not : )

    I am looking forward to this!!! Oh man I can't sleep anymore until release date

    Some smart guy told me, I could make an Emailaccount with all these Contacts in it and share this account.

    Do you know if this account will be synced in order to be accessible offline?

    Greetings
    MW
